I’m a terrible role model.
You see, 20 minutes ago, MS Flight Simulator art lead and artist extraordinaire Jason Waskey came into my office and refused to leave until I transformed myself from someone who wasn’t sure if "blog" was a noun or a verb into someone who reluctantly realizes it’s both.
So much for being an adult and standing up to little things like peer pressure.
Kids, do as I say, not as I do. And don’t make me come up there.
Jason promised me that there would be no actual effort involved, that I could simply copy and paste some random things from old email messages and make this a halfway interesting destination. I don’t believe him, but then I never do. In that spirit, then, this being my first post ever, I’ll copy and paste a short bio that has been used to describe me at certain speaking engagements:
Hal Bryan is a licensed pilot, super genius, notary public, former police officer and current software test engineer in Microsoft’s Games Studios. He’s been testing software for more than 8 years, as both a contractor and full-time employee at Microsoft, working on Windows 98, Flight Simulator, Combat Flight Simulator, and other game/simulation titles.
With that, I suppose I have now blogged. Watch this space for infrequent updates. Or don’t.
